A Census of Children's Residential Institutions in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, 1966: Volume 4 - Institutions for Emotionally Disturbed Children.
Pappenfort, Donnell M., Comp.; Kilpatrick, Dee Morgan, Comp.
The tables of statistics on residential institutions for emotionally disturbed children which constitute the volume are based on data assembled through the National Survey of Residential Child Care Facilities, covering all institutions in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands known to have been operating in September 1965. Tabular data are presented in three series corresponding to the following three independent variables: auspices (public or private and other subclassifications), size (25 or fewer, 26-75, 76 or more children), and location (according to the population size of area served) of institutions. Descriptive information for each of the three statistical series is grouped under topical headings which include such subjects as characteristics of children, length of stay, supplementary institutional functions, intake policies, services at admission, treatment, family treatment, staff reviews of children, psychiatric and casework hours, educational arrangements, community participation, staff, staff-child ratios, inservice training, and supervision.
